Prokofiev’s evanescent neoclassical turns, Saint-Saëns’ romantic era evocations of the baroque, and Tchaikovsky’s emotional, metaphysical exploration of the end of life are next stops on the nationally acclaimed Mercury Orchestra’s journey through musical time. This performance features 16-year-old pianist Victor Xie, winner of the 2014 Foundation for Chinese Performing Arts Concerto Competition.
